Calling all Aussies. Channel 9's A Current Affair is featuring Benjamin Grant Mitchell's account of life in the Worldwide Church of God this coming Monday night at 6.30. Mitchell is well known to Australian TV audiences through his appearances on shows like Neighbours. He recently 'blew the whistle' on his former faith community in the book The Last Great Day. The trailers are already airing for Monday's show, which labels WCG as "a doomsday cult," and a review of the programme, hot off the satellite, will be available here shortly afterwards.
Mitchell, whose father was a minister in the church, apparently melds fiction with autobiography in his book, which was the number one bestseller in July at Dymocks bookstores in Oz. For those beyond the shores of Australia, the easiest way to procure a copy is probably as an ebook from Amazon, selling for US$10.
And yes, chances are good that there'll be a review of that here too in due course.
